She said she hadn’t been called a genealogical hero before, but I think anyone who offers their many hours of hard work to the public is a hero!

What I didn’t know was that Sue is also the author of a website called http://www.scarletfinders.co.uk/. Having had a look at this well designed website I feel quite cheated that I don’t seem to have any military nurses on my family tree. There is so much to read on this site, Ware Diaries, Medals, Hospitals, different nursing services, book list and also a page about researching a nurse.

I think I will have to borrow some one else nursing ancestor and graft them onto my tree !

I have no idea who Sue Light is, but I think she is one of the growing band of “genealogical heroes” who is allowing their work to go online. Thank you Sue !

 

Now onto the records…. they comprise five record sets

Army Nursing Service – a small but significant set of 238 nurses of often quite genteel origin, born in the 19th century

Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service – records of 783 nurses, born between 1859 and 1904

Royal Hospital Chelsea Nurses – records of 165 largely untrained nurses, born between 1839 and 1876, who served at the hospital for pensioned soldiers between 1856 and 1910

Scottish Women’s Hospital – records of 1,575 women (and men) who were stationed in continental Europe during WWI

WW2 Military Nurses – details of 1,244 nurses who served in France with either Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service, or Queen Alexandra’s Reserve, or the Territorial Army Nursing Service, during WWII

 

So a dataset well worth a look at.
